Checking in from Gothenburg/Sweden, where we are about to lay final touches to the upcoming album at Studio Fredman. Feels great to finalize this monster project that kept us breathless and busy for the past seven months, and I dare say it sounds absolutely amazing so far. This is going to be a damn catchy and intense album. Furious, epic, heavy & wolfish to the max! Some more days of metal and mayhem ahead here in Sweden... exiting times!
POWERWOLF are confirmed for this years MAsters of Rock festvial in Vizovice/Czech Republic - remembering the great time we had there 2011 we can´t wait to get back to this wonderful festival - be there!!!
POWERWOLF are confirmed for Wacken Open Air 2013. We´re looking forward to returning to this holy ground. Be there to celebrate the metal mass with us !!!
It´s been mysteriously silent in the wolves´camp during the last few months. The reason for that is the best possible one: We have been more than busy writing the follow up album to "Blood of the saints". And after five intense months of blood, sweat and... even more blood, we can proudly tell you that most of the songwriting is done and there´s a truely monstrous piece of wolfish metal insanity on the way.
There will be fast stuff, heavy stuff and epic stuff as well as some unholy little surprises - and all of that in the most typical powerwolfish way you can imagine. Only 6 weeks to go until we enter the studio for the first part of the recordings - can´t wait to bring these songs to life. Be prepared for some kind of studio diary on Facebook whenever we find a minute in between invocations and studio work.
"We’re blessed to have found a mighty and truely believing partner for crusades to come. Among all the labels we had been takling to, Napalm Records were the ones who stood out in means of faith, spirit and dedication to the wolves. We’re looking forward to spreading the word of metal together with them in the future. Be prepared!"
Markus Riedler / CEO Napalm Records:
"Captain Napalm, the mighty twin-headed eagle, and the wolves have joined forces in order to begin the crusade for the Power Metal throne. There is no doubt that the ultimate victory of the band cannot be stopped. We are very proud to build a great future together with POWERWOLF. The album will be released in the summer of 2013 and the deafening howl of the wolves will make the competitors freeze with fear."
Bang your head! Festival was a blast. Thank you all for this celebration. We had a damn great time!
Next up is a row of festival shows: Queens of Metal, Ragnarock Open air and Devilside - be there!
The show at Graspop was awesome! What a giant celebration, what a great festival! Goosebumps allover. Thank you Belgium, thank you Graspop!!!
We're back from from the Metalfest tour. We had a damn great time! Actually stood the storm in Austria, fought the cold in Dessau, sailed with the wind in Poland, spent great days in sunny Croatia, preached the word of metal in Italy, celebrated the liturgy at Loreley and finally brought chaos and madness to Czech Republic and Switzerland. A big thank you to all the crowds for being amazing and our crew for being awesome. Now preparing for the Summer festivals to come. Next up is Gaspop in Belgium - be there!
Time for touring again. The pack is just about to embark on the Metalfest tour. 8 open air celebrations in 7 countries and 9 days. Looking forward to the madness to come!!! Hope to see you all there!!!!!
The Wolfsnaechte tour is over, and what can we say? It was overwhelming. We look back on 14 great celebrations and memorable nights full of blood, sweat and heavy metal. Our friends, none of this would have been possible without all of you, our true believers who made the venues' wall tumble, raised your fists and celebrated the metal mass with us. So in Attila´s words we would like to say "Vielen Dankeschön!".
We also would like to say thank you to our companions in crime on this tour: Mystic Prophecy, Stormwarrior and the our french fellow pack Lonewolf, it was a pleasure to kill side by side with you. Last but not least we bow our heads to our fantastic crew, who set up the church, fought the demons and turned water into wine for us each and every day: Tomtom, Olli, Jan, Ralph, Anna and busdriver Bernd for finding all those timewarps on the highways.
Coming next will be the Metalfest tour, we hope to see many of you out there!
The wolves have just been cofirmed for this year's BANG YOUR HEAD! Festival. We're looking forward to unleash hell at this legendary festival again. Be there!

We just came back from Metalcamp in Slowenia and Masters of Rock in Czech Republic and want to express our blessings and benedictions to the crowds for these incredible moments, you were awesome!
Here it is for your pleasure and salvation: the video clip to "We drink your blood". Enjoy.
The time has come: tomorrow morning from 11 a.m. on you all can witness the world premiere of the video to "We drink your blood" on Metal Hammer Germany´s website exclusively.
Here´s the link to your visual benediction:
As a foreboding of the things to come, here´s a trailer to the video for "We drink your blood". Enjoy.
The wolves recently had a shooting for a video clip for “We drink your blood” from the upcoming album “Blood of the saints”, which took place in an ancient monastery church. Actually posing the hell out of this place was marvelous. We can´t wait to share the result with you. Expect a premiere of the clip very soon. For now, here´s some making-of photography. Enjoy.
As some of you might have recognized watching the new promo pics, Tom Diener is no longer part of the pack. We decided to part ways already in December, during the songwriting process for "Blood of the saints". The wolves would like to thank him for a great time and bless him for his future. However, the holy drumseat is not vacant any longer: For upcoming crusades the pack welcomes Mr. Roel van Helden, the probably most hard hitting drum-reverent from the Netherlands known to man, who also performed the beats of blasphemy on "Blood of the saints".
Time to reveal some more details about "Blood of the saints". We proudly unveil the cover artwork, created by Matthew Grewolf. As well for your pleasure and salvation, we proudly unveil the tracklist. So fold your hands for the liturgy of the metal mass that will befall you on July 29th, and read out loud:
1. Agnus dei (Intro)
2. Sanctified with dynamite
3. We drink your blood
4. Murder at Midnight
5. All we need is blood
6. Dead boys don't cry
7. Son of a wolf
8. Night of the werewolves
9. Phantom of the funeral
10. Die, die, crucified
11. Ira Sancti (When the saints are going wild)
"Blood of the saints" will be released on July 29th in Europe and August 2nd in the US.
